Share one notable camp memory:
- On my first canoeing trip my J2 year, the counselors told us that a bad storm might hit our campsite that night and if it did we might have to evacuate. They then woke us up in the middle of the night saying we had to leave right now. We ran over terrified to the vans where they revealed it was all an elaborate pizza party.
